JESSICA JACKSON HUTCHINS: CONFESSIONS

One exhibition, two spaces.

September 2 – November 8, 2015

The Cooley Gallery and the lumber room, Portland


The lumber room and the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Reed College, are proud to present the Northwest’s first comprehensive exhibition of the work of internationally recognized, Portland-based artist Jessica Jackson Hutchins.


Confessions
is a collective endeavor that seeks transparency about the distinctions between collecting, curating, and making, while exploring related concerns such as the care, circulation, and preservation of works of art.
The exhibition is organized by Portland collector Sarah Miller Meigs and Cooley Gallery curator and director Stephanie Snyder, working closely with Hutchins to develop one interrelated exhibition that expresses the distinctiveness of each space, while allowing the artist to investigate their differences in situ through experimentation and dialogue.







PUBLICATION


In conjunction with the exhibition, the organizers are publishing an artist book by Jackson Hutchins. The book is designed by Gary Robbins in collaboration with the artist, with support from Heather Watkins, and printed at Container Corps, Portland.


The lumber room is located at 419 NW 9th Avenue, Portland.

The mission of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery is to enhance the academic offerings of Reed College with a diverse range of scholarly exhibitions, lectures, and colloquia in its role as a teaching gallery.

The gallery was established by a generous 1988 gift from Sue and Edward Cooley and John and Betty Gray "in support of the teaching of art history at Reed College, as part of an interdisciplinary educational experience that strengthens the art history component of Reed's distinctive humanities program." Exhibitions are coordinated in collaboration with Reed faculty members and courses, with attention to the needs and interests of the larger Portland and Northwest arts communities. A schedule of three to four exhibitions during the academic year brings to Reed and the Portland community work that would not otherwise be seen in the region.
